Video games have grown from the weird little hobby of the far-sighted few, to a mainstream juggernaut that drawfs the movie and music industries. It’s easy to understand why. Other forms of entertainment generally involve soaking up someone else’s vision, but gaming allows you to control the narrative personally, to a quite extraordinary degree in some modern titles.
From early, pixelated beginnings, to today’s AAA titles, video games have muscled in on the formerly sedate entertainment industries, with a huge variety of game types, like puzzles, shooters, adventures and fighters. It took quite a bit of time before gaming hit the coin world, but as you will see from the round-up below, they’re here to stay, and the selection is equally wide.
We’ve limited this to precious metal coins and rounds, although some, like Pobjoy Mint’s ‘Angry Birds’ base-metal offerings, may be added shortly. These guides are a great way for us to stay on top of certain types of popular coin without them taking over coverage too much, and we have similar ones under our Coin Profiles section (especially Thematic Guides). The Changelog will track updates for you, and the guide is currently spread over two pages, with the copious APMEX selection occupying page two. Let me know if I’ve missed any, as this is a first pass.
